I send some photos of reenacting the battle of Raab in Gyõr, Hungary.
The Battle of Raab was fought on 14 June 1809, between Franco-Italian forces and Austrian-Hungarian forces. Most of the Austrian-Hungarian army was 'noble army', it was the latest appearing the 'insurrenctio' in Hungary.
The battle was fought near Gyõr in Hungary and ended in a Franco-Italian victory. The victory prevented Archduke John from bringing any significant force to the Battle of Wagram, while Prince Eugene's force was able to link up with Napoleon at Vienna in time to fight at Wagram. Napoleon referred to the battle as "a granddaughter of Marengo and Friedland".
Now, after 200 years, there was a reenactment of the battle on the original battlefield.
On the first pictures, you can see a grainstore which was protected so bravely by the grazer Landwehr.
Many thanks to Mr. Krisztian Takacs.
